    US Navy should think better of themselves than to promote this crap without question.

    Discuss story?….More like we drank some vodka, serviced each other, drank some more vodka, concocted a BS story when this ship spotted us, downed some more vodka, serviced each other several more times while we waited on an unnecessary rescue. End of discussion!

    I'm not saying this to be sarcastic, but I really think they're both male/transgender, not that it matters, but it only adds to the mystery of this whole situation.

    Sad to see the U.S. Navy feels this story is worthy of posting… nothing but an attention seeking stunt made up by these so called "American mariners". On the other hand maybe the ladies aren't the only ones seeking "good" press? Papa – Alpha – Tango – Hotel – Echo – Tango – India – Charlie…

    If you believe these two lying lesbians trying to get a book deal, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

    1) They claimed there was a huge storm that started their troubles. But the National Weather Service says there was no such storm.
    2) They claimed ALL their equipment malfunctioned at the same time – GPS, Radio, Satellite phones. What's the chance of that, 1 in 20 billion? They should play the lottery.
    3) They never activated their distress beacon, which would have alerted everyone they needed help, and of their location. They HAD one, they just never turned it on.
    4) They claimed they were 24 hours from death. Of what? Stupidity? They had plenty of food and water, and shelter.
    5) They claim both their engine and mast/sail were disabled. The problem is, people can SEE their sail and mast… Nothing is wrong with either. And when inspected I suspect the same of their engine… Not that the engine matters, it's a SAIL BOAT. The engine is just for navigation in port.

    These two lying creeps need to be charged for the cost of their rescue.

    I think these two women are full of crap. The Navy is saying they never used the emergency beacon that was on their sailboat. It sounded fishy anyways (no pun intended haha) when they said they were attacked by two sharks. Nice try ladies, but no book deal or, movie for you!!!

    We decided there was no way we could live in a country where Trump was president. To our peril we dared to sail until he was impeached. We fault Trump for a our near demise.

    When they get back to Hawaii, and see their fellow sailors laughing at them,  THATS when the embarrassment  will hit them.

    Hats off to the Navy for even tolerating these two aboard ship. Their story is loaded with problems, and downright delusional statements.

    Has anyone considered the possibility that the younger woman was an unwitting hostage of the older woman? Perhaps the older woman took advantage of certain events that allowed her to exaggerate their situation to the point where the younger woman believed that they were actually dead in the water, allowing the older woman to keep her all to herself with no possibility of losing her to any other individual.

    THE STORY, as presented by the pair in question, DOES NOT ADD UP. Something is very wrong with the series of events related. NOBODY with even basic elementary knowledge of sailing and sailboats COULD BE THIS INCOMPETENT. Either one of them is perpetrating a hoax, or they both are. The Navy should investigate, and of course, the Navy should bill them for every penny of the cost of rescue if one or both of them are part of this obvious HOAX.

    "mariners"? Seriously?

    Mariners who can't jury rig a sail with a standing mast? Please.

    The Navy did a great job. Many of Ms. Appel's statements about her journey are not credible, and I wonder how much her boat ride cost taxpayers.

    Dont belive a word of this story. She's a con article from Honolulu, insurance fraud. 
    There weren't any storms after they left Hawaii, no 10 kt current, no 40' sharks, no devils triangle. It's all to make money.
